Donald J. Trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again. Lyin' Ted Cruz had the Governor of Wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts, and the entire party apparatus behind him. Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC's spending countless millions of dollars on false advertising against Mr. Trump, but he was coordinating `with his own Super PAC's (which is illegal) who totally control him. Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump.
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has decisively won the Wisconsin primary, complicating front-runner Donald Trump's path to the nomination.
In the Democratic race, Bernie Sanders scored a strong victory over Hillary Clinton in the Midwestern state.
Mr Trump leads the race, but could fall short of the number of delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination.
That would mean a contested convention where voting for candidates starts again from scratch.
How does a contested convention work?
Mr Trump said on Tuesday he would prevail despite the loss and took aim at his main rival.
"Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet – he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination," the Trump campaign said in a statement.
Party leaders are concerned that Mr Trump would be a weak candidate in the general election and could harm other Republicans lawmakers on the ballot. Polls show that the real estate tycoon is extremely unpopular among key voting blocs including women, Latinos and young people.
